FLORENCE CITY HOME in on the ground floor.
 
Located in San Frediano, a suggestive area in the very heart of Florence, it is just 10 minutes’walk from the greatest art galleries and museums.
It can be reached either by car (it is just outside the ZTL area, “Limited Traffic Area”) or, if you prefer, by bus or taxi which are available and easy to get, particularly if you need to come from Santa Maria Novella train station or to go to Piazzale Michelangelo, the exhibitions of the Fortezza da Basso or the Opera Maggio Musicale Fiorentino theater.
Cars can be parked nearby and with a little extra charge ( the central area is not reserved for parking, as it is allowed only to residents).

Its really strategical position, the quietness of a comfortable and refined lodging help to make the FLORENCE CITY HOME a perfect starting point to get to know Florence.

 

If you are travelling by Car (suggested direction)

Our Guest it can be reached either by car (it is just outside the ZTL area, “Limited Traffic Area”).

As you get to the exit of Firenze Impruneta Highway, you have to follow the road indications for Florence. Leaving the beautiful Certosa Convent of Galluzzo on your left, a road sign will show you are entering Florence.
Once you get to the "Due Strade" village, after a crossroad turn right into Via del Gelsomino and after a few metres turn left into the avenue of Poggio Imperiale so as to get to Porta Romana square.
This square can be easily noticed thanks to the ancient doors and walls of the old town of Florence.
Drive along half of the round square and then keep going straight on for about 2 minutes driving along different avenues whose names progressively are:
